New Orleans, Louisiana 2021-09-26 17:17:00 –
Playing took nearly 100 minutes, but Georgia finally achieved the goal needed to clear the fifth-placed LSU football team.
Mollie Belisle got a fully threaded path from Kayla Bruster and then placed her short-range shot in the left corner of the net. The goal was achieved when the clock stopped during the first overtime period, leading Louisiana to a 2-1 victory at the Southeastern Conference at LSU Soccer Stadium.
The defeat was LSU (8-2-0, 1-2-0) for the second consecutive year, scoring 28 goals in the first eight games.
LSU scored only one goal with two losses, but gave them enough aggressive chances to win on Sunday. LSU beat Georgia 23-17, including 12 shots in the goal, putting pressure on Bulldog goalkeeper Emory Wegener.
“We are proud of the players in the counterattack after losing to Ole Miss,” said LSU coach Cyan Hudson. “I think we showed a lot of grit and a lot of hearts, and in the last third we created some really good opportunities. Although we were cleaning them up at the beginning of the season. I didn’t do that today. “
Georgia (8-2-1, 1-1-1) scored the opening goal with a penalty kick in the 13th minute. LSU’s Wasila Diwura-Soale was asked to foul near the right corner of the penalty box, and Daniella Murguia placed a subsequent penalty kick on the left side of the net.
The penalty kick was defended by LSU goalkeeper Mollee Swift, who finished with four saves.
LSU evened out in the 29th minute when Ramie Noel scored on a follow-up shot. Wegener blocked Shannon Kook’s free kick from the left side of the goal, but Noel quickly put a bounce back into the net.
Both teams had a chance to score in the second half.
LSU’s Grace Hagati approached in the 68th minute, but her shot from 30 yards hit the right post. Maddy Morrow scored a pass in front of the goal in the 77th minute, but his one-on-one shot with Wegener was high and exceeded the goal.
Alexis Parker of Georgia fired a shot from the penalty box in the 86th minute, prompting a charge from Swift. Swift succeeded in playing and blocked Parker’s kick.
The team seemed to be heading into the second half of overtime when Verisle scored the winning golden goal in the game.
“The only Keila who helped me was a senior in the team’s fifth grade,” said Belisle, who participated in the game, scoring 11 goals leading the NCAA. “It was like a fairy tale at the end of the game. The last five years have come to fruition and she has played the ball for me.”
The next LSU match will be Friday, when the Tigers will play Alabama at Tuscaloosa.
